Sea of Thieves is an upcoming action-adventure video game developed by Rare and published by Microsoft Studios for Microsoft Windows and Xbox One, set for release in 2017. The game is purported to have elements of first-person gameplay and features user-generated content, in which players have the ability to craft their custom stories by using in-game tools. The game will feature co-op gameplay, and is set in an open world multiplayer environment. The game is currently being tested in closed alpha sessions through the Sea of Thieves Insider Program.

As the video explains, Sea of Thieves' world grows larger and more dangerous with this update. There are now more islands to explore and new challenges to take on, including some that involve stealing gold from other players. Additionally, the update adds fall damage, so you can no longer jump off high-up areas and hope to be just fine. In terms of the new dangers, the update adds skeletal pirates that you'll need to take down with your group of swashbuckling heroes. Here's the video:

I have had this one on my radar for a while now, they are already marketing collectibles for this game and we still don't have a release date. Haven't bought any collectibles for this one yet, I figure if it goes large, they will come out with some killer collectibles. Too many mediocre games in 2016 IMO, so I will wait and see.

Like Bear I have had my eye on it, the art direction reminds me of Fable somewhat. The open world mp setting could make or brake it for some people though especially when you can run about robbing other players.

For those of you still interested in becoming a pirate on PC; know that a new developer diary just dropped for Sea Of Thieves. In the diary, they revealed that an alpha test is coming this Saturday, May 20th (tomorrow). The alpha test will allow you to test out a variety of game mechanics and provide feedback to Rare.



They also revealed that they’ll be bringing the game to Microsoft HQ in Seattle to test the game on a hundred different PCs. That bit of info is important because it says to me they’re taking optimization seriously. They’ll have that data plus the data provided by the thousands of people who have access to the alpha.
They’re currently hard at work on the video settings for the PC version. The alpha is designed to test out their auto detect settings for optimization purposes.
The Xbox One & PC version will have the same content. Rare is also working 4K and cross-platform play for the community.

Here is a "Behind the Scenes" look at the game.

Microsoft is giving away 'Sea of Thieves' with Xbox purchases



Microsoft is gearing up to make playing Sea of Thieves as easy as possible. If you've heard all the hype surrounding the cartoony pirate simulator but don't already own an Xbox (or PC) to play it on, for a limited time, when you buy an Xbox One X you'll get developer Rare's latest for free. The promo lasts from March 18th through the 24th, with the March 20th launch day falling square in the middle.

If there's a catch, is that akin to most of Microsoft's other free game deals --including PUBG most recently -- this is a digital copy. But like Destiny and other games of this ilk, that's a bit more convenient than having to get up and swap discs whenever you feel like making someone walk the plank. Can't justify the $500 One X investment? Maybe Redmond can tempt you with a Xbox One S bundle for $200 less. And, of course, if you already have an Xbox subscribing to Game Pass means setting sail will only cost you $10 a month.

Joe Neate, Executive Producer at RARE, discusses content updates coming to Sea of Thieves.

Our first content update, The Hungering Deep, will release in May and bring with it a new AI threat to the world. Crews will have to work together to discover and defeat this threat as part of a unique event. We will also be introducing a number of new mechanics to assist players on this adventure, and there will be unique rewards that players can earn as part of this event. Beyond this, we will begin our weekly events programme during May, where we introduce new mechanics and give players fun new ways to play with weekly events and rewards.

In the summer months, we’ll debut two more content updates with Cursed Sails, which will include a new ship type, and Forsaken Shores, which will introduce players to a perilous new part of the world to explore. Similarly to The Hungering Deep, both of these updates will also include new gameplay mechanics for players, new AI threats to challenge and new unique rewards to claim.

As we’ve always said, we never wanted to do anything to separate our players, so we’re pleased to confirm that all content updates will be available to all our players, at no additional cost.
